Injury boost for Bulls

Jason Jenkins, Jannes Kirsten and Luther Obi have overcome their respective injuries and are available for selection when the Bulls host Griquas on Friday.

Bulls team doctor Herman Rossouw confirmed Jenkins (knee), Kirsten (shoulder) and Obi (ankle) have completed their recovery rehabilitation and started training with the rest of the squad.

Captain Arno Botha is making steady progress and Rossouw says he will undergo a fitness test later in the week to determine whether or not he will be able to play against Griquas.

Three players – stand-in captain Hanro Liebenberg (thumb), Ruan Steenkamp (hip) and Dries Swanepoel (groin) – sustained injuries in the match against the Pumas and sat out training on Monday. While Liebenberg and Swanepoel are expected to overcome their respective niggles, Steenkamp could miss the rest of the competition.
